Mr. Change changes Run-Mitt-Run Sponsor's Future Pension

Willard Mitt recently appointed William P. Monahan chairman of the state Civil Service Commission. Monahan, who will receive $80G for his ‘work’, is the former Belmont Selectman who we recall as having helped stage an illegal Romney political ad back in 1994 (but we can’t source it beyond the generic Globe piece of 6/9/1994, so we’ll leave it out today) and who last year organized the publicly funded “Run Mitt Run” rally. (source: Boston Globe, 8/22/2003)

An aide to Romney’s loathsome $150,000-a-year spokesman said Monahan “was only hired as chair of the civil service commission after an extensive application process."

Sure sure. We’d love to see the applicants that Monahan bested for that job.

Just as we’d love to see the Romney/Healey eat the many lies they spewed last year about wanting to clean up the Mess on Beacon Hill.

Like Kerry “Sherry Staples” Healey, who said, “"Patronage (is) not what Massachusetts is looking for in a governor. We need strong leadership from someone who is independent of the special interests. Mitt Romney is that person." (source: Boston Globe, 9/19/2002)

Or Romney’s loathsome $150,00-a-year spokesman, who grunted that, “Mitt is Mr. Change.'' (source: Worcester T&G, 9/24/2002)

Or the Fraud Candidate himself, who said he defined himself as an outsider who would reform patronage-laden Statehouse politics. “I'll be a voice for people who need to have a voice.” (source, Worcester T&G, 10/30/2002)

And, "This campaign is about cleaning up the mess on Beacon Hill. Balancing the budget can only be achieved by first eliminating waste and the political patronage of both parties and reining in the high-growth areas of the budget." (source: Boston Herald, 5/8/2002)

And "My plan is to have the members of the Republican Party pick my running mate," Romney said. (source: Boston Herald, 3/21/2002) (Whoops – wrong fraud. Where’d that come from?)

But our favorite quote today comes from the Royal Governor himself who, not too long ago, blathered “people who dedicate themselves to public service should do so without any expectation of a financial reward when that service comes to an end.” (source: Boston Herald, 8/8/2003)

Psst. Mr. Monahan, (who is now primed to get a 13-fold pension increase (from $4,800/year to $64,000/year (source: Boston Globe, 8/22/2003)), we think he was talking about you.
